Martellus Bennett one of seven Giants to miss practice

All those people that Tom Coughlin believes are picking against the Giants this weekend may feel more secure about their decision after a look at the team’s practice report from Wednesday.

Seven Giants missed the session, including tight end Martellus Bennett. Bennett left Sunday’s win over the Browns a couple of times with a knee injury, but returned to finish the game. Bennett told reporters, including Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, that he “messed some s— up” in his knee in that game. He hopes to be able to play against the 49ers, but isn’t sure whether the messed up s— will resolve itself in time to allow that to happen.

Defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and safety Kenny Phillips all missed the last game and all were absent from practice on Wednesday. Coughlin said that he hopes Nicks, who has been skipping Wednesday practices all year, will be able to practice this week. It’s not clear if he needs to do that before he’d be cleared to play in a game. Phillips is expected to be out a while longer with a sprained MCL and Bernard is fighting a quadriceps injury,

LB Chase Blackburn, CB Corey Webster and RB Andre Brown were the others to miss practice. Blackburn is expected back at practice on Thursday and Webster has been playing despite a broken bone in his hand. Brown needs clearance from doctors before he can return from the concussion he picked up against Cleveland.

    With the exception of Phllips, Giants need all these guys on the Field. Especially Chase, Webster and Brown. Bennett needs to suck it up too, we need him to draw coverage away from the middle and give Eli protection when Brown/Wilson is in.

    Brown can change the entire dynamic of the game combined with Bradshaw’s blocking.

    I’m very disappointed. Unless we scrape the Giants at their very best and with a full and healthy squad, IT DOESN’T COUNT

    I’m extremely disappointed. I also agree with Kyle Williams. The Giants have something that’s ours. BUT unless we scrape NY when they are at the pinnacle of their success with a healthy full squad, IT DOESN’T COUNT

    That’s one thing about Martellus Bennett this year. He’s a funny guy and really talks freely. He is one of those guys you can get comical quote from.

    The 49ers actually suck. I can’t wait until all these years are wasted for them with Alex Smith under center. 0 Super Bowls as long as he is there.

    The Giants have something that you could have had but blew it. A regular season win doesn’t change that fools….

    Very interested to see how my Giants react to all the injuries, and how deep we really are. They have every excuse to lose this one, let’s see if they man up or b*#!h out..
